My current adventures in Western Canada are drawing to a close in a matter of days. I am now sitting at my brother-in-law’s house in Edmonton, typing to you on a broken laptop. The LCD, you see, developed an inexplicable hair-line fracture in Penticton. Over the course of a few days this crack spidered up and branched across the screen in various directions,...

Southern Souls put up a new video of me performing my new song ”Beware’. It’s a jaunty folk tune dedicated to our benevolent leaders. I’m heading to Montreal now for a show at Grumpy’s. This little Ontario run has been a wicked fun warm-up for my western tour. Ottawa was a golden riot and I think I burnt my...

I’m catching a plane to Vancouver tomorrow morning, then on to Sweetwater BC for a festival there this weekend. It promises to be a pretty awesome event. I was surprised at the number of friends of mine also playing at this particular festival: It’s going to be very strange for me — leaving my little life in Hamilton for...

Sweetwater festival was a dream about explosions and tulips. I had such a nice time with new and old friends. Shred Kelly had an enormous pyrotechnic display during their set that they entirely did not intend… and didn’t know was happening. It was pretty impressive to those of us cowering below. Ms. Quincy, Folky Strum Strum, Go Go Bonkers… plenty...

Well, I’m nearly finished all of the recorded bits for my new record. Next we mix the whole thing. That will take a some doing. Fortunately Nick makes a mean home-brew red wine. That’s bound to help keep our heads on right for the task. I’m playing in Toronto this Saturday at Rancho Relaxo. Hope you can make it. I had a killer time in St....

I have some shows coming up and I mean to tell you about them, but first I will type a thing or two about my days these days. In November I toured Ontario — just on the weekends — with my pal BA Johnston. We had a very nice time. Things finished off with a debaucherous run through Kingston, Montreal and Ottawa. I think I busted the joy noodle in my brain...
